bailout


With every passing day, this bailout looks more and more like the sinking of the Titanic. With the determination to throw hundreds of billions of dollars at businesses that bit off far more than they could chew but nothing but platitudes for the taxpayers, we have the political version of loading the first-class passengers, burdened down with their jewels and currency, into the lifeboats while the gates to the upper decks are locked and barred so that the steerage passengers can't take any valuable lifeboat space in order that the rich and powerful may survive reasonably unscathed. People without fabulous wealth don't even merit a deck chair to hold on to as the water closes in. I guess the republicans are right after all.

Government is the problem, not the solution.
